I've enjoyed reading this forum. Great ideas, good folks, lotsa help to everyone. Would love some of your input on my first purchase of a ZTR. My local dealer is a good guy, have known him for quite some time personally. He has 3 offers that sound like good ones for the closeout of the season. offer #1: Super Z, 60, 27hp kohler, XR7 .. its a Demo with 38 hours on it Slighty scuffed up in three places. I demo'd it on my yard and fell in love with the Super Z. Price 7500 tax and all and he is thowing in an extra set of blades and full 2yr wrnty offer #2: Super Z,60, 25Kaw, XR7 ..... Brand spanking new Price: 7950 tax and all offer #3: Super Z, 72, 25Kaw, XR7 .... Brand new, been on the showroom floor for some time and he wants to get rid of it Price: 7950 tax and all Which offer would you take? They all sound good. I have 4.5 acres with almost 4 to mow. Losta open areas, Some trees in a couple of areas. It takes me about 5 and half to 6 hours to mow with my current 10yo, 15hp Crapsman, oops Craftsman mower (42in) I demo'd The Deer ZTR, Kubota, and Dixie Chopper. Nothing was as good as the Super Z.
